We have a responsibility to enthrone a safe atmosphere in our schools, according to Atiku.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the former Vice President, has urged the government to investigate the murder of a 12-year-old pupil at Dowen College in Lagos.
Atiku responded to the controversial death of a 12-year-old kid, who was alleged to have died from injuries received after an attack by his classmates who intended to initiate him into cultism, through his Twitter profile.
The ex-VP said, “We shall be failing in our duties as parents/ guardians, administrators, security agencies and government if we do not get to the bottom of the case of late Sylvester Oromoni. It is beholden upon us to enthrone a safe environment in our schools. #JusticeforSylvester.”
Dowen College administration has disputed that Sylvester was assaulted by his classmates.
According to a statement released by the school on Wednesday, the dead student was not mistreated or abused and simply complained of hip pain after playing football.
Hakeem Odumosu, the Lagos Commissioner of Police, has ordered a swift inquiry into the situation.
Dowen College has also been ordered closed by the Lagos State Government pending the conclusion of investigations.
